What is the Doug Walker Challenge Course Campaign?

Where will the challenge course be located? 
The Doug Walker Challenge Course will be located at the Jackson Campus of Teton Science Schools and made available as a resource for use by partners within the Jackson Hole Community, fulfilling Doug’s original dream.
What are the benefits of this project?
The course will provide endless opportunities in team building as well as the development of physical and emotional fitness for hundreds of TSS participants, local students and partnering organizations.
How will the course be designed?
The course will be designed in partnership with Project Adventure; the pioneer and leader in design, construction and training surrounding adventure-based challenge courses.
Where does my money go?
All funds will be transferred directly to the Teton Science Schools, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization located in Jackson Hole, WY.  All funds will be used for the reconstruction of the Doug Walker Challenge Course.
How do I know my donation will make a difference?
All donors will receive a story and a photo about a life that has been changed through the work of the Teton Science Schools.

HELP NEEDED:: Doug Walker Challenge Course Moving to Teton Science School

Almost 20 years ago I lost my brother and one of my heroes. He is someone I continue to emulate. We shared a commitment to protect the earth, to educate others, specifically through experiential education, and to live a fun and passion-filled life. Doug was determined to make a positive change in the world and was an inspiration to many.

There are countless stories of individuals around the world reaching out to our family to tell us how much he meant to them. Even though its been 20 years, these stories continue to come in and help my family and I deal with our lost and connect us to his life. This course will not just help to continue to build Doug’s legacy, but will expose a generation of people to many of his tenets by which he lived: adventure, learning beyond the classroom, nature, fun, and challenging himself both physically and spiritually.

Gary Synder once wrote:
“This is our body. Drawn up cross-legged by the flames
drinking icy water
hugging babies, kissing bellies,
Laughing on the Great Earth”

These elements are all part of what we would like to re-build at the Doug Walker Challenge Course at Teton Science Schools.

Ways you can help:
1. Make a donation to the campaign.
2. Join me, start a fundraiser and share this campaign with friends.

Love and Peace to you all.

Thanks for your support
